contesting a will with undue influence

My father recently died in testate with a multi million dollar estate. he died in march 2004 and his final will was in olographic form dated aug 17 2003. the bulk of his estate was left to his 5th wife. the natural children feel like we have a great undue influence claim against the wife as she has for years tried to alienate him from his children.we also feel we could challenge his mecompetency at the time of the writing of the will but we will have to get the medical records first. we have already filed, in proper person, a petition to invalidate the will.we have example after example of undue influence including fabricated events by her to cast the natural children in a false light.she also signed a prenup. in a nutshell, what are our chances of being successful with this challenge? I read where there was a will challenged with undue influence in the third circuit i believe in 2001. the challenge was successful with far less criteria brought to the challenge than we have. we have the evidence to back up our claims.They were married 14 years. she was 33 when they married. he was almost 70....are you getting the picture??..i am grateful for and am awaiting your reply! thank you!
